Another anti-abortion protest takes place outside Kilkenny health centre

Another anti-abortion protest has taken place in the town of Graiguenamanagh.

A group of 11 or more people gathered outside the health centre there yesterday morning holding signs with slogans like “Say no to Abortion in Graiguenamanagh” and “Doctors save lives not end them”.

A religious poster was also being displayed.

KCLR News understands this is the second such protest to take place there, after reports that the health centre had signed up to provide abortion services.

It comes as legislation creating exclusion zones around healthcare facilities providing abortion is expected to be ready by March.
